The nine-blade diaphragm to produce a quality of bokeh.

This 24mm f/1.8 lens is designed for full-frame format Sony E-mount mirrorless cameras and provides a 36mm equivalent focal length when used on APS-C-format cameras.
Bright f/1.8 maximum aperture is ideal for working in low-light conditions and offers greater control over depth of field and focus position for selective focus applications.
Two extra-low dispersion elements, two aspherical elements, and three high refractive index elements are incorporated within the lens design and help to control chromatic aberrations as well as reduce color fringing for sharper, clearer imagery.
An Ultra Multi-Coating has been applied to all lens elements to suppress lens flare and ghosting for increased contrast and color accuracy.
The Linear STM autofocus motor and internal focus design maintains the overall length of the lens during use.
A non-rotating 58mm front filter mount enables the use of polarizing, graduated ND, and other filter types that require precise positioning.
Rounded nine-blade diaphragm contributes to a pleasing out-of-focus quality when using selective focus or shallow depth of field techniques.

Asked by: Bill
Yes, this is the 24mm f/1.8 prime with the dedicated astrophotography mode. According to Rokinon/Samyang: "Astrophotography Mode Astrophotography Mode automatically sets the lens focusing mode to MF, moves and locks the lens to infinity focus, and the Infinity Focus Confirmation LED will light in green. If the focus control ring is moved, the LED will turn to red." https://bit.ly/36qfiH4
